Motorola Preparing Update For The WiFi XOOM, Possibly Ice Cream Sandwich

WiFi Motorola XOOM owners may be in for a treat. Motorola has begun sending out invitations asking “Google Experience” XOOM WiFI owners to participate in a new project. They go on to inform users that the project is confidential and that you must first meet certain requirements to partake in this particular project. It’s all very mysterious, but given the fact that they specifically refer to the XOOM as a “Google Experience” device, it’s highly likely that they are preparing to release the Android 4.0 update and are looking to test it out.

A Google experience device refers to a device that was first to be released sporting one of Google’s latest OS versions. In the case of the XOOM, it was the first device to have Honeycomb and therefore is a “Google Experience” device. Being a “Google Experience” device also means faster updates once a newer version of Android comes out. The fact that Motorola uses the term “Google Experience” could hint at a possible Ice Cream Sandwich update. I’m sure a bunch of you XOOM owners are sure hoping so, and it would be great to see the OG Android tablet get some update love. There’s no other info other than what was provided via the email, so take a look at it and deduce what you wish. Cheers!
